In the greenest of our valleys
By good angels tenanted,
Once a fair and stately palace-
Radiant palace- reared its head.
In the monarch Thought's dominion-
It stood there!
Never seraph spread a pinion
Over fabric half so fair!
Banners yellow, glorious, golden,
On its roof did float and flow,
(This- all this- was in the olden
Time long ago,)
And every gentle air that dallied,
In that sweet day,
Along the ramparts plumed and pallid,
A winged odor went away.
Wanderers in that happy valley,
Through two luminous windows, saw
Spirits moving musically,
To a lute's well-tuned law,
Round about a throne where, sitting
In state his glory well-befitting,
The ruler of the realm was seen.
And all with pearl and ruby glowing
Was the fair palace door,
Through which came flowing, flowing, flowing,
And sparkling evermore,
A troop of Echoes, whose sweet duty
Was but to sing,
In voices of surpassing beauty,
The wit and wisdom of their king.
But evil things, in robes of sorrow,
Assailed the monarch's high estate.
(Ah, let us mourn!- for never morrow
Shall dawn upon him desolate!)
And round about his home the glory
That blushed and bloomed,
Is but a dim-remembered story
Of the old time entombed.
And travellers, now, within that valley,
Through the red-litten windows see
Vast forms, that move fantastically
To a discordant melody,
While, like a ghastly rapid river,
Through the pale door
A hideous throng rush out forever
And laugh- but smile no more.

Und irgendwo versteckt, da steht dieses Haus mit den traurigen Augen. Es versperrt uns den Zutritt in sein Inneres, doch womöglich ist es nur darauf bedacht, seine Bewohner zu schützen.

It's almost March and I'm barely getting to the #edgarallanpoe quilt @jakubzladder got me for Christmas/graduation 😁 #dontjudgeme 😑 I'm slowly getting back to a "normal" life after a grueling, blur of 2019 full of clinicals and work.
I even hit my home gym last night 😝 #win 🙌
Just playing around with my skull! I had a lot of great ideas suggested and combined a few to try something out. The different floral suggestions made me think of some of my favorite subjects. So this is an ode to them.. Almond blossoms for Vincent Van Gogh, the poppy for Sherlock Holmes, and the raven feather for Edgar Allen Poe. The skull itself made me think of each of them. I have the skull and flowers scanned separately so I can do different things. I'm pretty happy with this! I'm going to print one for my wall! Thanks for looking! .

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow —
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand —
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep — while I weep!
O God! Can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
"Edgar Allan Poe: Medo Clássico"

Feeling like my head might explode today. Work stress has been getting to me, as have all the recent nightmares and resultant sleep deprivation. Clearly there is a lot buzzing around my head right now... so I’m very much looking forward to the weekend 😆 yet it’s only Wednesday. Rude.
The most terrifying book on my TBR is not one of the many horror books I still want to read, but it is the epic Dune. I love a chunky book, so it’s not the length that intimidates me, but the complicated sci-fi that resides within. Fingers crossed I will actually read it at some point this year... and that I will complete it 😂
BUT HOW PRETTY IS THIS EDITION? 😍 it has blue sprayed edges as well. Totally swoon worthy 🥰 I’m hoping it’ll enhance my motivation to read this one!
Are you hoping to tackle any terrifying books this year? 😱

“Until, at length a single dim ray, like the thread of the spider, shot from out the crevice and fell upon the vulture eye” – Edgar Allan Poe, The Tell-Tale Heart
First time working with oils and I am practically in love. I am so amazed by how smoothly the colours blend together and how utterly easy it became to paint realism. I found the cutest frames on Etsy as a cherry on top to complete this tiny painting.
